There is no caveat to that title.... the staff are simply the friendliest you will meet anywhere. The dorms have ac, with a price that others hostel don't even offer a fan for. The private rooms are cheap & clean, and the the breakfast is basic, but included in the stupidly low price. There are bbq's, a smoking terrace, free... More

I stayed in one of the private rooms with my boyfriend on holiday in October. The rooms are very small and are basically just a cardboard box around a bed. But it seems quite clean and the bed is nice as well. They have a very decent chillout area that is nice to hang out in, and one of the... More

Stayed here for my short stay in Kuala Lumpur. The bed was very comfortable and the room was tidy, clean and not too small. Staff are friendly and helpful. This is close to bus and rail facilities so it is easy to access from the airport.

We checking in around 10pm, and gave up around 2am. Just packed out cased, dumped out key at reception and left this hellhole. There is cheap,... More

The hotel is very well located in Chinatown and next to Little India. The access with the subway is very easy. The price is good and the staff very friendly. The rooms are tiny and without windows. We just stayed inside the room to sleep and it was good enough. The breakfast is basic but fine.

Rooms are small but fine especially for few days, beds comfy, great atmosphere in hostel guy behind reception really friendly. On the night we watched films in the chill out area which was nice. For the... More

Who needs windows in the night? This is not ironical, I didn't mind not having windows, since it's too hot outside anyway, so the AC is fine enough. The longhouse is just a long corridor stuffed with rooms. they have fairly thin walls but that is no problem. Breakfast is continental, simple but fine. Who wants more can go round... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Longhouse, and for $16 it is one of the cheapest places in KL for a double room. The hostel is quiet, in a great location about 1 minute from Petaling Street, and there are plenty of bathrooms for rooms. The staff and friendly and guests were relaxed and sociable. The only reason for not... More

Really cheap single rooms (for the price of a dorm bed in some other places) Basic but clean rooms, comfortable bed and pillow, fan and two power plugs, no window though Also very thin walls (actually not walls but plywood), not for the noise-sensitive... Fastest internet I've had in a long time (already travelling for 7 months now) Filtered water,... More
